Zaelyna Beck is a writer, blogger, and beta reader. One of her earliest pieces, “Across The Ragged Desert” placed in the Writer Digest 79th Annual Competition Top 25 for non-rhyming poetry.
Her latest project, Kaia of L.A., seeks to explore her journey through training an under-socialized mutt and being a new dog owner in a big city.
Upon receiving her Bachelor’s from Southern CT State, Zae developed an interest in visual storytelling. She moved to New Orleans to get her feet in the production door. While there, she worked as a Production Assistant on shows like America’s Got Talent and X-Factor. The world of reality television and general production soon became familiar, but Zae kept her sights on the writing world.
Between gigs, Zae dabbled in freelance writing. She primarily composed articles for online platforms—most notably Examiner.com (now defunct)—with an emphasis on local entertainment and industry news. However, Zae also accepted the occasional opportunity to revise manuscripts from various clientele.
With a goal to climb the ladder into a television writers’ room, Zae continued her way across the U.S. After a brief stint living and working around the Rocky Mountains, she landed in Los Angeles, CA. Through connections she made along the way, Zae managed a lateral move from reality into script television.
She now spends her days in scripted television, soaking up knowledge of the production process from the inside. On nights and weekends, Zae continues developing her own projects.
